In progress

Glial tumours are the most common primary brain tumours, with an incidence of around 5/100,000/year. They represent a heterogeneous group of tumours, classified according to their histological grade (grades 1 to 4) and their molecular profile. Glioblastoma (grade 4) is the most common and most aggressive glial tumour in adults, characterised by significant intra-tumour heterogeneity and a poor prognosis, with a median survival of 14 to 16 months despite current treatments including surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and targeted therapies. They therefore represent a real therapeutic challenge. The development of neoangiogenesis and cell invasion along white matter fibre bundles are known to be the main factors in resistance to glioma treatment[6]. The TTUVI (Tumors Transcranial Ultrasound Vascular Imaging) research project aims to develop a non-invasive 3D transcranial ultrasound vascular imaging technique for diagnosing brain tumours in humans and for monitoring the effectiveness of proposed treatments.
